CARACAS, June 24 (Xinhua) -- President of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly Ali Abdessalam Treki on Thursday lauded the Venezuelan government's progress in the fight against drug trafficking.

During a meeting with Venezuelan Justice Minister Tareck El Aissami and National Anti-Drug Office Director Nestor Luis Reverol, Treki said a UN analysis last week indicated that the country's fight against drug trafficking and organized crime had achieved positive results.

"We are satisfied with the achievements presented by the Venezuelan government," said Treki, who was on a visit to Venezuela as part of his Latin America tour to evaluate social projects of the Millennium Development Goals 2001-2015.

Treki has also met with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and other senior officials, who briefed him about progress in some social causes, including the fight against poverty and inequality, the effort to reduce birth-related mortality, literacy campaigns and food, education and health assistance to women.
